Over 100 people were shot in Chicago during Father’s Day weekend and at least 14 of those shot ended up dying.
So far in 2020, this was the most violent weekend in Chicago.
According to a report from the Chicago Sun-Times, 104 people were shot between June 19 to June 22, with several shootings take place early in the morning of June 22.
Of these random shootings that took place in Chicago, a number of them claimed the lives of children.
“Bullets don’t just tear apart the things they strike,” Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown said during a press conference June 21 addressing the surge in gun violence. “Bullets also tear apart families. Bullets destroy neighborhoods and they ruin any sense of safety in a community.”
“Good men throughout this city should be celebrating with their families on a beautiful day, but instead, a number of Chicagoans will be spending Father’s Day grieving the loss of their children,” he continued, according to a report from the Chicago Tribune.
“These kids are not criminals,” Chicago Police Chief of Detectives Brendan Deenihan noted, making reference to some of the children who fell prey to gunfire, according to ABC 7. “They are not gang members. They have nothing to do with the ongoing disputes out there and they just get gunned down for no reason at all.”
“A line was crossed,” declared the Reverend Ira Acree of Greater St. John Bible Church.“This is a horrific Father’s Day. This 3-year-old baby lost his life. … I could not pastor this community and not say something.”
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot also chimed in about the violence. She went on Twitter and said: “Our city’s collective heart breaks to hear the unfathomable news of a 3-year-old boy who was shot and killed tonight on Chicago’s West Side. There are simply no words to describe such a heinous, unconscionable act of cowardice to shoot at a toddler.”
Like many urban centers, Chicago has embraced a lax on crime approach that makes it easier for criminals to have their way against law-abiding people.
Last year, Cook County deleted its gang database out of fear that it depicted prejudiced stats about crime.
It also doesn’t help that Chicago has some of the most stringent gun control laws of any city in America.
Should the combination of the aforementioned policies stay in place, Chicago will continue to be one of the most dangerous cities in the country.
University Student Who Dared Question the LGBT Agenda is Now Facing the Threat of Losing his Scholarship
Defy the LGBT agenda at your own peril.
A Villanova University student claims that her academic advisor is attempting to intimidate her for tweets that criticized the university’s promotion of Pride Month.
Melanie Didioti, a graduate student at Villanova University, criticized the school’s athletic department for its Pride Month tweet on June 22, 2020. The tweet stated, “Love is Love. Happy #PrideMonth – We are proud to be an ally of the LGBTQ+ Community.”
Didioti responded with a tweet: “Villanova is proud to be an ally of the LGBTQ community and ashamed to be Catholic so I’m ashamed to attend here and that’s that.”
She claimed that this tweet resulted in her having a tense meeting with her academic advisor in the theology department, Professor Jennifer Jackson, on June 26.
Initially, Jackson claimed that the meeting was only about the fall 2020 schedule, per emails that The College Fix was able to require.
Instead, Didioti asserted that Jackson took advantage of the meeting to blast her tweets.
Didioti concluded that this interaction was the final “nail in the coffin,” and she now has plans to transfer to the Franciscan University of Steubenville, which is more conservative.
Universities in America have become leftist think tanks that do not promote free speech, nor allow people to hold provocative views.
Most conservatives are probably better off skipping class and learning trades.
